Craig youth wrestlers chew up competition in Hayden

The week between their home events was no day off for members of Craig’s two youth wrestling teams. Bad Dogs and Moffat County Youth Wrestling each walked away Saturday with plenty of excitement and experience, as well as some medals following the Hayden Peewee Wrestling Tournament. With about two dozen teams visiting Hayden for the day and some weight classes so full they required multiple brackets, Craig’s groups did well, 17 champions between them — some taking five straight pins during the day — and even more second- and third-place finishers.

The amount of participants was smaller Saturday than any varsity meet Moffat County High School track and field teams have had this year, but the numbers spoke for themselves at the Mickey Dunn Invitational.
